Recipe – Cinnamon roll cake

Recipe - Cinnamon roll cake

I have a confession to make. I never made or tasted cinnamon rolls ever in my life until I made this cinnamon roll cake. My boyfriend went to Canada for 6 months a few years ago and he told me that he had eaten a cinnamon roll almost everyday. Since he came back, that was 6 years ago, he had never eaten them again. So I decided to make some for him. I looked at the internet for a recipe, did some changes to it and combined some recipes. I also decided that I wanted to make the rolls into a cake. It was a big hit. My boyfriend loved the cake!

How to make this delicious cinnamon roll cake

1. Start with the dough. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until you get a nice and cohesive dough. Place the bowl in a warm place with plastic foil on top of it until the dough is twice it’s previous size (about one hour). Roll out your dough until you’ve got a square from approximately 25 x 45 cm. Put a layer of butter on top of it. Mix the brown sugar with the cinnamon powder and spread this evenly on top of the dough. Now roll your dough until you’ve got a 45 cm wide and about 7 cm thick roll. Slice this in 1 inch thick pieces.
2. Place the pieces of dough in a greased 25 cm diameter round cake tin. Place the tin in a preheated oven on the lowest possible temperature for half an hour. It will rise a lot in that time. Take the tin out of the oven. Preheat the oven at 180 degrees Celsius (356 degrees Fahrenheit) . Bake the cake for another 3o minutes.
3. Make the glaze by mixing the butter with the vanilla extract and the powdered sugar and mix well. Add water, little bits at a time, to give the glaze the right consistency.
4. Pour the glaze on top of your cinnamon roll cake and your cake is ready for serving!
